Cubs | Mike Baxter out of lineup Sunday

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 14:20:28 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Mike Baxter is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the St. Louis Cardinals. OF Chris Denorfia is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: The presence of Carlos Martinez may be keeping Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) out of the starting lineup. Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is 3-for-3 against Martinez lifetime, with two RBIs. Start Denorfia if you need an outfielder.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler still out

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 08:38:49 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is out of the lineup Thursday, June 25, with OF Chris Denorfia taking his place.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) is in a 3-for-21 skid, but he's still hitting .319 on the season. He's not a bad basement option against Carlos Frias today.

Cubs | Dexter Fowler remains out

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:04:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Dexter Fowler (ankle) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Chris Denorfia is playing right field and batting first, and OF Matt Szczur is playing center field and batting seventh against Los Angeles Dodgers SP Mike Bolsinger Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Fowler ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) is missing his second consecutive game, but he did appear as a pinch hitting Tuesday, June 23, so it is safe to say he should return soon. In the meantime, Denorfia ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) clocks in as a viable low-priced flier, and Szczur as a desperation source of cap relief for FantasyScore contests Wednesday.

Cubs | Junior Lake out Wednesday

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 11:52:37 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 10. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and hitting eighth against Detroit Tigers SP Shane Greene. OF Mike Baxter is serving as the designated hitter and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) isn't a bad deep sleeper play when he's in the lineup, and he's hitting .433 (13-for-30) in limited at-bats due to injuries this year. However, a spot at the bottom of the order probably means you should avoid him. Baxter ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) can also be avoided today.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia batting fifth

Tue, 09 Jun 2015 15:13:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia will start in left field and bat fifth in the lineup Tuesday, June 9, against the Detroit Tigers. OF Chris Coghlan comes out of the lineup, while OF Junior Lake will drop down to the seventh spot in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has nine hits in 19 plate appearances against righties this season, as he goes up against RHP Anibal Sanchez. Just one of Denorfia's nine hits have been of the extra-base variety, but Denorfia is hitting high enough in the order to be considered a cheap flier.

Cubs | Junior Lake will not start

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 10:13:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Junior Lake is not in the starting lineup Sunday, June 7. OF Chris Denorfia will be the starting right fielder and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the near future. Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) will be playing his first game since being activated from the disabled list, so owners may want to avoid him for the time being.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia activated

Sun, 07 Jun 2015 10:12:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list Sunday, June 7. The Cubs also optioned OF Matt Szczur to Class AAA Iowa.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) probably will be a regular starting option for the Cubs but should see some playing time. Owners on FantasyScore probably should avoid Denorfia until he plays in a few games.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia injured, headed back to DL

Tue, 05 May 2015 04:40:44 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia (hamstring) aggravated a left hamstring strain Monday, May 4, against the St. Louis Cardinals and left the game. Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Denorfia would likely be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) spent the first few weeks of the season on the DL before coming off, so this is a setback for him and the Cubs. Remove Denorfia as an option in your leagues and keep an eye on Junior Lake ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) for a source of low-cost outfield power.

Cubs | Chris Denorfia starting in right field

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:28:15 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting eighth against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Denforia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been limited to just 20 plate appearances this season, but he has handled the stick well when given the opportunity -- .368/.400/.421 slash line. He could be a sneaky source of cap relief Monday for FantasyScore players. Although, he is far from risk free.

Cubs | Jorge Soler out of lineup vs. Cards

Mon, 04 May 2015 12:21:40 -0700

Chicago Cubs OF Jorge Soler is not in the starting lineup against the St. Louis Cardinals Monday, May 4. OF Chris Denorfia is starting in right field and batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Soler in daily contests Monday. His 38 strikeouts pace the league, and while his yearly numbers aren't awful (11 runs, two home runs, nine RBI and a .269/.337/.409 slash line), Soler has looked a little miffed at the plate of late. Denorfia ($1,900, 3.8% of cap) has been limited primarily to pinch-hitting duty, but at his cap hit, he could return nice value. He isn't without risk, though.
